Preview from my DVD: “Dyeing to Stitch”

Woot! Look what the Quilting Arts folks posted on YouTube, an excerpt from my DVD.

I think I look a little strange around the eyes, like I don’t want to blink. And I think I say “so” like 10 million times, but besides that, it’s not too bad!

Don’t forget, I’m having a pre-order special where I’ll include a piece of the fabric dyed on the set while taping the DVD and ship them as soon as they’re ready, end of October or early November!

My moment this week? The excitement I felt yesterday when I got the email alerting me that the video was posted, and the fact that I didn’t hesitate at ALL to press play! I’ve gotten over the extreme fear I had to see myself on the screen that I had for my debut on QATV last year, where I had to have a party to force myself to watch! If I waited until I were skinny to do any of these video projects, well, they wouldn’t be done. And this has been so exciting for me that I am SO GLAD that I’m not waiting for everything to be perfect, I’m just taking my opportunities as they come!

  1. Candy,
    Your instructions are excellent. You teach just the way I want to learn. You are concise and to the point. I think that is because you are very organized.

    Also, you have that touch of whimsy in your choice of words that encourages creativity. Thank you for showing us how you make your magic.

  2. “At some point, you have to surrender to the dye.” Love that phrase from your video!! I think it’s less about waiting for things to be perfect, and more about realizing things are perfect just the way they are – and it’s time to hit the streets with all that you have to offer (without apology)!!!! Really nice style!

  3. Good explanation, and I didn’t notice anything but the instructions – oh yeah, and your use of the word “scrumbly”! Good way to put it, because scrunching would be too tight. The DVD looks like a great one for beginners to learn to dye.
